after hour of rain and the humidity is very high and that means the temperature doesn't drop much tonight. 65 degrees at #:3:00, 68 in philadelphia, 7:00 a.m. not going to need any kind of jacket. and look what happens to the temperatures. 84 yesterday, high today 75, but with sunshine tomorrows we jump up to 87. more clouds sunday means closer to 82 degrees. the radar shows not that much out there right now. so we get a chance to dry out at least a little bit. nothing but a couple little green blips indicating light showers. but a lot more action back out to the west. some of it far west. and some of those systems are fairly strong as they move in over the weekend. by the way you can see your own "7-day forecast" at the bottom of your screen at any time. now, we've had showers today. we have more showers coming on saturday. sunday though, that is the day
where we'll see the greatest amount of storms. but as you can see, not a bhol will the to start the day tomorrow. i think there will be fog and then with a little bit of sunshine, heat of the day, look what you're seeing. you're seeing just some scattered showers. not everybody getting rain at the any one time. most of that was on the light side. now as we go into sunday, look at those areas of showers and thunderstorms and that could even be part of sunday morning. so buying race even the morning part could see some showers. but it's not an all day rain. look what happens in the afternoon and evening, that is a big storm. here is another one in new jersey, here is another one over philadelphia. another one near baltimore. so that is more of what we're expecting they're kind of scattered around the areas. but the highest threat of the hail and high winds is from the
philadelphia area especially chester county and the rest of delaware farther to the south, so it's one of those days you want to keep updated on what is going on. and for the weekend, saturday generally a better day than sunday. but even saturday you could see a shower or storm especially in the afternoon. and the 10 day outlook shows dry weather on monday, then a chance of showers election day that would just be brief. and then another system coming friday. but at least we have dry days in between. eagles coach says one of his quarterbacks is prattiseparates themselves from the others. the ryan howard situation is next.
